How to make

Dip apples in boiling water for 5 seconds to remove the wax. Apples naturally have a waxy coating, so do this even for farmers market apples.

1. Remove wax

Boil heavy cream, brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, and salt until it reaches 245°F. Don't stir, or it might turn grainy.

2. Make caramel

Cool caramel to 200°F in a glass measuring cup. Dip apples, scraping caramel off the bottom so it doesn't puddle.

3. Cool caramel & dip apples

Roll the caramel around the apple for 5 seconds to distribute & let it set.

4. Set caramel

Roll apple in toppings while caramel is still wet. Try nuts, chocolate, cereal, granola, coconut, marshmallows, and more.

5. Dip in toppings

6. Refrigerate

Refrigerate caramel apples for up to 1 week.
